That is incorrect. She died in 1516.
From an original 1877 black and white lithograph of a drawing by Frances Christina Baldwyn-Childe of the incised slab to English knight, Sir William Leighton, that lies on the north side of the chancel floor inside Leighton Church, and the incised slab to Elizabeth Devereux, wife of English knight Sir Thomas Leighton, that lies on the sill of one of the chancel windows inside Burford Church in Shropshire, England, United Kingdom.
This slab is of lead, and was restored in 1848. It lies on the sill of one of the chancel windows. It is to the memory of Elizabeth Devereux, daughter of Lord Ferrars of Chartley, K.G., who married first, Sir Richard Corbet (by whom she had Robert, ancestor of the Corbets, of Acton Reynald, and Anne, wife of Sir Thomas Cornwall, of Burford.); and second, Sir Thomas Leighton Knight Banneret, Sheriff of Shropshire, 1495, M.P. for Shropshire, by whom she had John ancestor of the Leightons of Loton. On one side of her is a shield bearing the arms of Devereux, with Corbet quarterings, and on the other, Devereux with Leighton quarterings. The following is the inscription:--
Here lythe Elizabeth Debroke, daughter unto Sir Walter Debroke, knight of the most noble order and lorde Ferres of Chartley, whyche Elizabeth was wyfe unto Sir Richard Corbet of Moreton, knight, and after was married unto Sir Thomas Leyghton, knight of Stretton-in-le-dale, weche Elizabeth deoted owt of this transitory worlde in the yere of owre Lord God 1516, whose soule ihu have.
